“Following the conclusion of the Race Car #1, Jamie Whincup, failed to remain on track as required for podium cars as detailed in the End of Race Procedure,” read the stewards summary.
“The breach was admitted. This is the second breach of the End of Race procedure for Car #1 during the 2018 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship. The Stewards imposed a Fine on the Driver of Car #1 in the sum of $2,000.”
Meanwhile, stewards determined that no driver was wholly or predominately to blame for an incident that saw Anton De Pasquale (Erebus Motorsport) spin and Rick Kelly (Nissan Motorsport) leave the track at Turn 8 on the opening lap, meaning that Andre Heimgartner (Nissan Motorsport) was not penalised.
